Neck and Shoulder Pain Treatment In Camberwell SE5 and Shoreditch E1, London

Are you seeking treatment for pain in Central London?

If you’re someone who suffers from back, neck or shoulder pain, it’s safe to say that at times it can be debilitating and tiring. Constant pain can be something that takes over your life, however there are treatments out there. If you’re tired of taking endless painkillers and losing sleep, why not consider acupuncture?

Acupuncture is effective for the alleviation of musculoskeletal pain, headaches, shoulder pain, and arthritis related pain. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (New York, NY) researchers conclude that the analgesic effects of acupuncture are superior to sham controls and the pain relief persists over time. The research team concludes that acupuncture is an effective treatment modality for chronic pain and referral to an acupuncturist is a reasonable treatment option. In a meta-analysis of 20,827 patients across 39 clinical trials, researchers determined that acupuncture’s pain relieving effects for patients with musculoskeletal pain, headaches, shoulder pain, and arthritis persist over time—with only a 15% decrease in treatment efficacy after one year. The sham controlled trials indicate an additional important factor. The researchers note that the effects of acupuncture cannot be explained by placebo effects. A nuanced finding is that the analgesic effects of acupuncture are dose dependent. Increased numbers of acupuncture treatments produce superior patient outcomes with significant reductions in pain. The data also indicates that both manual acupuncture and electroacupuncture are equally effective.
